“Part of Santa’s Complete Breakfast”

A sketch I just barely, slightly started during school today! : )

Maybe the awkwardly missing second eye suggests that it’s a teeny bit too soon to share….?

Still, I’d just like to start talking more about what I’ve been drawing! Even if it’s only in little bits and pieces and scraps, like this.

Then, WIAW!! Again, a friendly get-together of what I’ve eaten the past few days. I cooked a huge-normous batch of brown rice on Sunday, so there’s a bit of a pattern!

Brown rice, avocado, mushrooms (very local – grown about thirty minutes away!), broccoli, SprouTofu + herbs & sea salt.

Siggi’s – just plain!

Brown rice, edamame, goat cheese, spring greenies, broccoli & carrots + lemon zest, s&p.

Peppermint + gingerbread oatmeal! 1/2 cup (dry) oats, with molasses, walnuts, ginger/cinnamon/cloves, crushed gingerbread candy-cane, kefir, and a banana.

…Best-Breakfast Award for this week. : ) Santa-approved, too!

Brown rice, sauteed tofu + veggies.

Romaine, out-of-season strawberries (ah!), olive oil, raw honey. Little and simple!

Casting for drama club’s multi-show show was released today! I’m going to be playing Rebecca Nurse in Crucible, and a little extra role in Titanic. : ) I did a search, and found out that Rebecca Nurse was a real woman, actually accused of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials! Should make for some super fun character research. : )

Have a beautiful Wednesday evening! (Mine will be spent prepping for three tests tomorrow – ahhh!)

Sweet little breakfast – 

Another Ezekiel English muffin! Jelly + maple almond butter and chocolate hazelnut spread.

Chubby persimmon!

…I gathered a small bundle of holiday tidbits while grocery shopping with my mom!

December issue of Whole Living,

+two husky candy cane friends! Gingerbread and chocolate filled. : )

Drifting deeper into the gingerbread + chocolate theme….Theo gingerbread chocolate bar! Half the bar has already disappeared. The ginger is so strong and yummy! Probably my new very favorite bar. (For now – I’ve been trying to whoosh away my diet into wider variety….chocolate = included!!)

Auditions for drama club’s February show are tomorrow! (Shoo, anxious energy!!) The cast should be posted before the end of the week – line memorization + practice is left for our own responsibility, over the holiday break. (No school = no organized rehearsals! Ah!) The new play is called “Titanic, Trial, and Tragedy”. It’s a medley of scenes from three shows: Titanic (not the movie), The Crucible, and Romeo & Juliet. I would loovvvee to play Abigail (The Crubible)…roles that are driven so powerfully by the character’s physicality + emotion are super fun. : )

Today was woven with vinyasa flow yoga, homework, guitar….and Doctor Who! I’m happy that I could help myself by relaxing, while still not putting my mind into a slump over getting “nothing done”. It feels nice to have found a gentle balance!

Now, I’m going to decorate the tree!

Bah, Humbug

Saturday – wheee!

Breakfast… soft natural light, since I’m actually eating breakfast when it’s light outside!

Ezekiel English muffin: one half with pumpkin, coconut, oats and chocolate chips…other half, same, except with chunky peanut butter, instead of pumpy-kin.

+a big sliced pear with cinnamon.

Last night, was drama’s first performance of “Bah Humbug”. (ie, “The Christmas Carol!) Backstage was absolutely hectic (maybe this is just how high school theater always goes!!), but I feel like what the audience did see went well! 🙂

Tonight is performance number two – I’m not my larger role tonight. Instead, just extra “odd-parts” throughout the play. At least from my perspective, it should flow slightly smoother! (No “microphone drama” for me tonight, yay!)

Oh, and school has been the inspiration for some doodles, recently!

For a “Create-Your-Own Political Party” project in history class:

…Mr. Eagle!

For… um, not paying attention in class! (Oops!) :

We’re getting our Christmas tree tomorrow, and my festivity is expanding. 🙂

Happy weekend!!

WIAW + A Cause for Grief!

Yay, I’m joining the WIAW party this week! 🙂 (Just some eats from the last few days, it was a little difficult to creep in a picture of everything from only today…but, I have taken a liking to photographing oatmeal!!)

Oats with coconut, a yoghurt hill, mushy banana, and chocolate chips:

Broccoli with baked tofu + olive oil:

Apple-pear (Frankenstein fruit…? 🙂 ) with cinnay-mon:

Steamed butternut squash + apple, with goat cheese, raspberry dressing, cinnamon, and sea salt:

Chunky peanut butter + pumpkin (and… cinnamon!) on Wheat & Flax bread:

Bitty stash of chickpeas!

Romaine + butternut squash, raw honey, olive oil, goat cheese, s&p:

Baked tofu, hummus, and spring green sammich:

Oats with pumpkin, milk, chocolate chips, chunky peanut butter… and cinnamon. 🙂

And, lots of caffeinated Clif bars – 6.5 hour drama rehearsal Monday + 7 hours on Tuesday! It’s tech week, and only two more days until the show. Ahhh! It’s a good, excited kind of scary, though! 🙂

In solemn news: my family’s oven has dieeeedd. 😦 I’m currently in mourning, but getting by for now…no-bake cookies to help fund-raise for drama, and planning on making a no-bake cheesecake sometime soon!

Still, I’ve already told my mother: if we don’t get our new oven before Christmas and a holiday baking frenzy cannot be commenced, I may lose some sanity!

…no drama club rehearsals this week, though! 😦 Next week is tech week + dress rehearsals, so this span off may lead to a rockier transition into the more “grinding” pre-show hustle.

Oh, and did I ever mention what show we’re performing? See here:

Haha – maybe this is the explanation for my extremely pre-mature “holiday spirit”? 😉

Enjoy a glorious Sunday evening!

Any exciting Thanksgiving journeys planned?

…any brag-worthy dishes/desserts planned? 😉

Gold Star

XC championships…

Are not today!!

…more time for mental prep. This is good!
…more time for mental stress…this is bad! 😦

The course was attacked by buckets of rain yesterday, so they pushed the race to tomorrow. Just to give it some time to dry up a little bit!

(Though, I’ve heard from a conflicting source that the race is Saturday–which is it??)


…is my script for drama club.

Notice anything?? 🙂

Gold pink flower star!

I earned it for my “projection, memorization, and for listening to + following advice/corrections”.

Pre-race pasta dinner tonight (assuming a Friday race). 🙂 I’m starting to tense up, so hopefully, it’ll help chill my nerves!

Bake Therapy



Rice, veggie, cheese, beast.

I’m still pretty nervous for Thursday (XC championships)…of course the natural way around this was to bake oatmeal tea bread. 🙂

(Pre-bake…already delicious):

(After bakin’ was commenced):

Recipe adapted from: http://joyinmykitchen.blogspot.com/2011/01/oatmeal-tea-bread.html

Off to school in a second. Drama club + XC practice overlap. 😦 So, I go to drama, then do the workout on my own…which I don’t like to do, at all! I feel like some of my motivation is zapped when I’m not running with the rest of the team.

Later plans: lots of guitar and music!! I’ve been neglecting this lately, and it’s been upsetting me!
